MOST WANTED (Comcast Free Movies) Better-than-average action thriller, freshened by Keenen Ivory Wayans as a fugitive Marine sharpshooter framed for the assassination of the first lady. Juicy turns by Paul Sorvino as an unflappable CIA chief and by Jon Voight as a maniacal renegade general, brandishing a cracker accent. (R; runs through Nov. 14)
